Men are more likely to die due to Coronavirus

From Bus drivers to luxury travelers to Prime Ministers, everyone’s life has been impacted by the deadly Covid-19 virus across the globe. While many are recovering safely from the virus, there are threats of long term physical damage from the virus.

One of the most pronounced divides to emerge regards gender. And how COVID-19 is affecting men and women differently isn’t just in the way that the virus is making us sick – it’s also in our long-term health and economic prospects. One of the most striking differences that have emerged so far is in the death rates of men and women.

In the US, for example, twice as many men have been dying from the virus as women. Similarly, 69% of all coronavirus deaths across Western Europe have been male. Similar patterns have been seen in China and elsewhere.

Meanwhile in India, as per the data from the Health Ministry, 76 percent of the coronavirus patients in India are men, while, 24 percent of those are women 7 percent of the COVID-19 cases are in people who fall under the age of 40, while, 34 percent of the COVID-19 patients in India fall in the age group of 40 to 60, and 19 percent of the patients are 60 years of age and above.
